Where You’ll Find Me

Where You'll FInd Me Friday

I haven't been writing as much as of late, not due to a shortage of things to talk about, but mainly because of a workload that has been taking me away from doing some of the things I love. Yep, when you work full time, it's hard to partake in the things you love. Last week a business trip took me to Los Angeles, and I went a few days early and enjoyed the beauty of Southern California. I went boogie boarding in Santa Monica, dining in SilverLake, exploring in Pasadena and hiking in the Palisades. It was heaven, and a bonus, I was on my own, without the Read More


Grace and Frankie is Coming Back!


An avid Netflix viewer, I discovered and fell in love with Grace and Frankie last year when it debuted. I've been eagerly awaiting its return, especially after its cliffhanger at the end of the season when two characters slept together who should not have, so I'm happy to report it's coming back May 6th. In typical Netflix savvy style, they debuted the trailer on Twitter, which you can watch above: Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, with Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen as their husbands are coming back, as well as all their children. If you haven't Read More


My 2016 Pop Culture Resolutions

pop culture 2016

2015 was such a good year for pop culture. From books to TV shows to movies, it was just very satisfying. Streaming video and binging kind of took over my life, as I fell in love with shows like Grace & Frankie on Netflix, Casual on Hulu and Transparent on Amazon. Over on the networks, shows that I became addicted to were Jane the Virgin and Crazy-Ex Girlfriend, which I of course binged on Hulu and rarely watched live. Books like The Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes, Paper Love by Sarah Wildman and Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox by Joanne Read More

The Picasso Exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Yesterday I decided to take some time out and do something I'd wanted to do for a while: go into the city and hit the Picasso exhibit at the Met.  Since the very first time I went to the Picasso Museum in Paris, and then to the one in Barcelona, I became a huge fan of this famous artist and was eager to see the Met's collection before it closes on August 15th.  Picasso is not only one of my favorite artists, but one of the most pivotal artists of our time.
